When Mercury turns retrograde, we generally encounter a higher than normal occurrence of disruptions, delays, breakdowns and upsets in fields relating to and involving communications, from transportation to negotiations. Typical Mercury Retrograde situations: labour disruptions and strikes, rallies, marches, protests, breakdowns in negotiations, labour relations and peace talks, computer hardware and software crashes and slowdowns, loss of mail, loss of luggage while travelling, car problems, delays in receiving mail and communications…
As I write this blog post, I realize that, even though the numbers spoke otherwise, it never occurred to me that I would be putting the words “President” and “Trump” together in the same sentence.

Regardless of your current spiritual affiliation, or lack thereof, you are likely to agree that our world is in dire need of change. The world appears to be a mess right now, but it only appears to be so because we are beginning to see what has been there all along.

I had just stepped into the bath, a daily ritual of sorts, or perhaps more of a treat; a hot bubble bath and a good book to read. I had patched up my crumbling copy of The Third Eye by Lobsang Rampa with a few strips of navy blue electrical tape and a strip of packing tape to hold it all together.

It’s Monday, but you’re not sure how to start off the week. Somehow, you don’t feel the same as you did Monday of last week, nor the week before. So, what’s up? No doubt, it’s because each week starts with a new number. Working with the daily numbers can be very helpful in helping you select those activities that respect the tone of the day. Let’s see if we can avoid the Monday morning blues and start the week right by being in harmony with our numbers.
